6.3% - Auckland Airport''s international passengers (excluding transits) were
up by 6.3% in November 2017 compared to November 2016. Growth occurred across
all regions with a particularly strong performance on Asia and Middle Eastern
routes (+16.6%) and the Pacific Island services (+6.9%).  International
passenger growth was underpinned by seat capacity growth and higher load
factors across the network.

10.8% - Visitor arrivals from the United States of America to Auckland
Airport were up 10.8% in November 2017 compared to November 2016.  This

relatives (VFR) travel sectors achieved double-digit growth in November 2017.
